Ubuntu One 4
Get 5GB of cloud storage space for free

Ubuntu One is an online backup, storage, streaming and file sharing service.

Despite the name, you don't have to use Ubuntu (or know anything about it) to use the service. It offers 5GB of free online storage space to anyone who installs one of the clients, and there are builds available for Ubuntu, Windows, Android 2.1 and higher and iPhone/ iPad iOS 3.1 or higher.

Once installed the program works much like many other cloud storage clients.

There's a local Ubuntu One folder where you can save files and have them automatically synced with your online account, and you can also synchronise other folders if necessary.

A "Share folder" option in your browser-based dashboard will send a link to the email address you specify, allowing the recipient to see and download any of those files.

Handy settings include the option allow you to limit Ubuntu One's upload and download speeds, so it won't hog all your network bandwidth.

And there are commercial add-ons available, if you need them. Music streaming gets you 20GB of storage for $3.99 a month, and streams content to Ubuntu One's Android or iPhone apps. Or you can add extra storage in 20GB blocks for $2.99 a month, or an annual $29.99.

Verdict:

An easy-to-use cloud storage client, particularly interesting if you need to sync files across Windows, Ubuntu, Android and/or iOS devices.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.80

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.80

• Now you can delete messages you've sent by mistake. Just tap and hold a message you sent in the last 7 minutes, tap delete, and select "Delete for everyone." The message will be deleted for you and everyone in the chat. Requires the latest version of WhatsApp.
• Live location: now you can share your location in real-time with family and friends. Open any chat, tap the + icon > location, and tap "Share Live Location" to get started. 
• Fixed an issue that was preventing some message notifications from appearing on iOS 11.
